Yeah, I heard Meshawn Johnson tell the world that it was a huge mistake that we let Plaxico walk. I was thinking the EXACT same thing when I saw Randle El connect to Hines during XL. I was sitting there and cursing the Rooney's after Randle El pulled in that TD pass.

All I heard the day after XL was that we need a tall WR. It seemed like every Steeler fan was calling for a tall WR. It was amazing.

We all know 6'6 WRs are automatically bound for Canton. Get it done Rooney's, don't be cheap!!! Dump Arians, Parker stinks...

The Steelers just need a solid # 3 receiver...oh...and a good pass blocking O-Line...oh and maybe another running back...oh and maybe a D-lineman or two for depth...

Tall Short, Old Young...I don't effing care as long as on 3rd and 18, with the game on the line, you make the effing catch...something Washington tends not to do, he drops a lot of passes and something Wilson doesn't ever seem to be in position to do, when is the last time he wasn't covered?

i was high on trannon last year and felt we shoulda gave him a chance in the seventh... but dallas fell to us...

i really like this guy... i hope he makes the roster and will be able to contribute...

im gonna hope and pray he makes it... just like i did with patrick cobbs when he came... too bad patrick never made the team...

The knock on Trannon before last years combine was his speed and poor route running....He ran a 5.57 at the combine which was marginally better than the 4.69 range that he was thought to run....however his combine performance never silenced the critics about his route running skills.

Jared Zabransky on the other hand, is an interesting prospect...He ran faster than any other QB in the draft with a 4.53 (and that includes Troy Smith) ..and once ran an 80+ yard touchdown in college. He is solid on short and intermediate passes...but death on on the long ball. tending to underthrow or lob into coverage....would come cheaper than Brian St Pierre...and is more competitive.

We called 'em hot bottoms.

That was before I discovered a hot bottom was on a female.

haha when i first saw 5.57 i was like wtf are we doing with this guy then i saw the 4.69...

i second the notion that zabransky lobs and underthrows his passes... it was evident whenever boise state played hawaii that he'd always be a yard or two short or the ball would just hang in the air... like a punt almost it was in the air for so long
